I've been an SCCA road racer since 1990. I helped with my brother Chris' ProRally car for the past four or five years until I couldn't stand spectating anymore! I co-drove for Chris in the 1996 Perce Neige and we won our class. For my first rally as a driver, I rented Peter Watt's old Suzuki Swift GT and with co-driver Scott Slingerland, we won the Regional Prod 1750 Class at the 1998 Rallye of Quebec. I started building my current car, a Group 5 1979 Mazda RX7H, in July of 1999.

I am above all a motor racing enthusiast. I love to road race, rally, anything. I hope to someday be in a position to get paid to do what I love; until then I will continue to work my fingers to the bone in order to go racing. I build all of my cars and engines from the ground up, which is the only reason I can do what I am doing. I also build racing cars and offer services to other racers and rallyists.
